Alfa Romeo gets a BMW X1 rival ready to rumble
Italian car manufacturer Alfa Romeo is getting ready to show us a compact-sized crossover/SUV that it plans to sell as a cheaper alternative to the Stelvio. The vehicle will most likely debut at the 2019 Geneva Motor Show.
Some sources claim the car will be based on the same Giorgio platform as the Stelvio and Giulia, while others say it will get the front-driven architecture called SCCS, used by the Fiat 500X and Jeep Renegade.
Standard equipment will likely include a wide range of safety-oriented systems, as well as a SAE Level 3 self-drive feature.
According to an earlier announcement, the crossover/SUV will ship with a choice between a two-liter, four-cylinder gasoline engine and a hybrid powertrain. Their specs remain undisclosed.
Alfa Romeo is also working on an unannounced crossover flagship, which will get an engine capable of 400 hp / 300 kW. Rumors suggest the car may become available in 2020.
